Concepts of AIWS 7-Layer Model and AI-Government

On December 4, Mr. Nguyen Anh Tuan, Director of Michael Dukakis Institute for Leadership and Innovation (MDI), CEO of Boston Global Forum (BGF), had the honor of being a lead speaker of the “AI in Government” at in the AI World Conference & Expo. He put emphasis on the importance of AI ethics and introduced his organizations’ outstanding initiatives: The AIWS 7-Layer Model and the AI-Government.

The Artificial Intelligence World Society (AIWS) is a set of values, ideas, concepts and protocols for standards and norms whose goal is to advance the peaceful development of AI to improve the quality of life for all humanity. It was conceived and established by MDI on November 22, 2017.

AIWS has developed the AIWS 7-Layer Model. This model establishes a set of norms and best practices for the development, management, and uses of AI so that this technology is safe, humane, and beneficial to society.

In addition to AIWS’s approach to AI ethics, he also introduced the concept of AI-Government which is a component of the AIWS. E-Government is the use of communication and information technology for improving the performance of public sector agencies. AI-Government transcends E-Government by applying AI to assist decision making for all critical public sector functions – notably provision of public services, performance of civic functions, and evaluation of public officials. The core of AI-Government is the National Decision making and Data Center (NDMD). NDMD collects, stores, analyzes, and applies massive amounts of data relevant to the provision of public services and the evaluation of public programs and officials. It does not replace governance by humans or human decisional processes but guides and informs them, while providing an objective basis for service provision and evaluation.
